Wearable seizure detection: a personalized care strategy for epilepsy patients

Clinical-grade wearables could put control back in the hands of epilepsy patients Epilepsy is a neurological condition causing recurring seizures that are nearly impossible to predict. In addition, the frequency and occurrence is often underreported because patients are not always aware of their seizures. Developing a deep, personalized understanding of each case is the key to effective treatment, but available personal seizure detection technologies are nonspecific, invasive and unwieldy. Overcoming these challenges will require intense collaboration between ‘med’ and ‘tech’.

Wearable health: taking care beyond the clinic

Is the tech ready to drive a revolutionary shift in healthcare – or vice-versa?

Summer Interning at Byteflies: Data Science

Interested in an internship at Byteflies? Contact us! Here at Byteflies we are always on the lookout for excellent summer internship candidates. Last summer, we had the pleasure of hosting Tomas Fiers in the Signal Processing & Data Science team. He validated the signal quality of Byteflies IMU sensors against gold-standard recordings obtained in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), and ran some activity classification experiments. Read on for his excellent report!

Why value-based healthcare models work

Fostering positive-sum competition to breathe life back into the healthcare ecosystem Fee-for-service models are familiar to all of us. In healthcare, we are generally charged for every procedure that a doctor or clinician performs, even if it doesn’t have a positive outcome. Focused entirely on the here and now and characterized by higher costs, fewer services, errors and quality differences, this model is facing plenty of scrutiny as we move toward more integrative, personalized care.

The Byteflies Sensor Dot: a miniature vital signs lab

Capable of accurately measuring 5 signals (with more on the way), the tiny Byteflies Sensor Dot offers a software/hardware platform for the development of diverse wearable health applications that rely on continuous physiologic monitoring. With the launch of the Sensor Dot, a brand-new arsenal of powerful, clinically relevant tools becomes available to medical and pharma companies for the first time.

Google Launchpad Studio program has lift-off!

The kick-off week for the first edition of the Google Launchpad Studio program in San Francisco is officially over, but we're only getting started! In case you missed the original announcement, Byteflies is one of four startups selected to participate in Launchpad Studio, a Google acceleration program for applied machine learning.

Byteflies works with Google to bring Machine Learning to its Wearable Health Platform

San Francisco/Antwerp, November 1, 2017 – Byteflies, the Belgian-American wearable health startup, was selected to join the Google Launchpad Studio program. After launching their wearable health Exploration Kit last month, the company will work together with Google to generate medical insights from the raw sensor data.
